h T he P olk C ounty P ost VOLUME 1. CITY'S FUST ELECIION UNDER NED CHANTEN (TWICE A WEEK.) I------------------------------------------------------------------------ I DOING MORE THAN A “BIT” Despite a large falling off in patronage, M anagers Nelson and H enkle of the Isis have kept the th eater open, show ing the best pictures in the world of films. They have not only done th is and gave Independence its only, place of am usem ent, but have turned the building over for every' public m eeting, p a tri otic or otherwise, w ithout fee or price. By keeping the house open they have brought ad d it ional patronage to every busi ness house in Independence and adding to this th eir free service for patriotic and public m eetings, they certainly de serve some token of rew ard and appreciation, and The Post be lieves th at such a token should be an increase of patronage for th e ir shows.
